Meeting the Volunteers: Cynthia Knuppe

WRITTEN BY // Claudia Hauter CATEGORIES // Team | Capecheetah-blog | Inverdoorn-blog

“All noble things are as difficult as they are rare.” – Baruch Spinoza

Meeting the Volunteers: Cynthia Knuppe

The lodge is abuzz with activity, and not only because it’s summer season. The other reason for all the energy coursing through the reserve is the interns and volunteers. I have never seen so many at one time, and considering the passion and enthusiasm they bring with, you can just imagine the spirit in the place.

The lodge and reserve is kind of in the middle of nowhere, but that’s...

10 Must-See (African) Animal Movies

We love movies! Who doesn’t, right? So in the spirit of cinema and wildlife, we decided to pick ten movies featuring African animals and tried to see if we could spot which ones live at Inverdoorn as well.   1. Khumba This movie was a definite for our list, because it was made by a South African animation company based in Cape Town, called Triggerfish, and is set in the Karoo. As you can imagine we recognised practically...
